Township Assistance

Trustee Aid


The Trustee is here to help the residents of the Washington Township in times of crisis. The Trustee does not provide any long-term support or relief.

However, if you have a sudden, unavoidable problem, we may be able to help with basic necessities of life:
  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Shelter
  • Medical
  • Essential utility supplies
  • Household supplies
